stew

We are going into the spring season (Argentina) but we have had some really cold days lately (13°C, 55° F) I mean we had colder days before but knowing that spring is almost here you expect something more for the weather.

Anyway, my mother and I usually have lunch together on Fridays. Most times we, Victoria and I) go to her house but this time she came to ours. It was a rainy and cold and gray all around day so I thought to pull some cans form my pantry and some veggies form my fridge and make a veggie stew.

Here are the ingredients:

2 medium yellow onions.

1 clove of garlic.

2 green onions.

1 bay leaf.

2 stick of celery.

1 leek

3 medium white potatoes

2 carrots

1 can of peas

1 can of chickpeas

1 can of butter beans

1 tblsp vegetable oil

Water

Salt, pepper, paprika to taste

Chop the garlic, onions, leek and green onions. On medium high add the oil to you stew pan, add garlic first and let it stay with the oil for 20 seconds, BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN IT, add onions, leek and green onions. Let it sauté, until the onions turn transparent. Add the carrots, I cut them in circles, you cut them the way you like and potatoes cut in quarters. Add salt, pepper and paprika to your taste and the bay leaf, I like a good ration of pepper and paprika. Open the can of beans and peas and add the water that comes with them, NOT the peas or beans themselves, put aside for latter. The idea is to recycle as much as possible, and the cans have a lot of flavor in the water, why not to use it.

Let all simmer for 5 minutes and add more water if needed, you need to cover the potatoes as much as possible, turn the heat to medium lower and cover.

Check it out once in a while and stir. 10 minutes into the cooking you need to pierced one potato with a knife, when they are half way done, add the peas, and the beans.

5 to 10 minutes and everything is done.
